Hey gang! I'm so very excited to release this game and expand the "astro-verse". TA posted a solid preview of the game.

Also super interested to hear what y'all think!

Or XPilot.

Looking forward to playing with this when I get home.

Any chance for Apple TV functionality? We'll probably screen mirror it, but it would be awesome to turn the iPhone/iPad into just a controller with the game on the screen...

Hah, cool. I'll check out Xpilot when I get home.

AppleTV stuff? I'm very (VERY) excited about WWDC this year. If Apple actually announces an AppleTV App Store, I want to get Astro Party (or perhaps Astro Duel) as a day-one launch title.

Just released Version 1.2 of Astro Party. I got the idea of doing native 1080p on the iPhone plus from this TA review of Space Age. Now Astro Party shows ultra sharp pixels on even the newest iPhones. (I quite enjoyed Space Age too!)

- Support for native 1080p on iPhone 6 Plus
- Support for native 750p on iPhone 6
- Added support for 64-bit devices

Celebration Update

A couple weeks ago I released the Celebration Update for Astro Party. Lots of content here, but my favorite additions are the three new levels and the video replays. I hope you'll dig it!

Here's the whole change log:


** Celebration Update **

3 More Levels
- Dance
- Maze
- Loop

3 More Modifiers
- No Powerups
- Scatter Shot
- Super Dash

Added Video Replays
- Uses Everyplay to share and view replays
- Recording videos requires a fast device
- Disable recording if game runs too slow

4 Players on iPhone
- The full iPad experience, now on iPhone
- 3 or 4 players use smaller corner buttons
- Best on iPhone 6 Plus

Starting powerup modifier now shows which powerup is selected before battle. Useful for "Random" starting powerup.
Added a new Wild Rooster intro screen
Added a news screen. Includes update info and Astro Duel release announcement.

Fixed rare pilot "self-kill" bug
Renamed game mode "Headhunters" to be "Ship Hunters"
Renamed game mode "Pilot Execution" to be "Pilot Hunters"
Default game mode is now Pilot Hunters

** New in 2.0.1 **

Reworded and reordered Advanced Setup menu
Fixed a respawn bug on the Loop level
When powerups are disabled, no orange asteroids will spawn
